The Wisconsin Family Action or WFA works along with Wisconsin Family Council to advance Christian principles and values in Wisconsin in many ways, including legislatively at the state capital. Bethany, a sophomore at Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown, can’t wait to build her political and professional experience, as well as make a difference here in Wisconsin. “It’s going to expose me to a lot of different aspects of politics. It’s not just focusing on one thing.”
Bethany believes the education she received at Bay City really prepared her for college and for this internship. “My history classes, they were so interesting. Also through Bay City I was able to apply for the YLTC, Youth Legislative Training Conference, in Washington D.C… I had to write an essay about why I wanted to go and my application was selected.” Only two students in each state were chosen to be a part of the program. Bethany spent a week in Washington D.C. listening to speakers and doing a mock senate. She says, “That’s where I decided I wanted to pursue politics!”
It wasn’t only her political opportunities through Bay City that have helped her advance her goals.
